Paradigm Talent Agency’s formidable music roster is continuing to grow with the hiring of two more agents — Ali Hedrick and Trey Many who bring in such artists as Sufjan Stevens, Death Cab for Cutie, Neko Case, Beach House, Glen Hansard, Fleet Foxes and Lord Huron. Hedrick will be based in Seattle and Many in Los Angeles.
“I have considered Trey and Ali friends for many years, and I’m excited to have them join Paradigm,” said Paradigm music agent Sam Hunt, who is a member of the agency’s music leadership team. “They bring tremendous leadership and integrity, an awesome roster of talent and a broad scope of capabilities.”
Prior to joining Paradigm, Hedrick spent 22 years at boutique agency The Billions Corporation. Her roster includes Sufjan Stevens, Glen Hansard, Neko Case, Noname, The New Pornographers, Calexico, Rhye, Bill Callahan, Destroyer, Daniel Lanois, Thao & the Get Down Stay Down and The Swell Season. In addition to being an agent, Hedrick was also the festival coordinator for Billions, helping to book festival performances for the agency’s roster.
Many spent the last 10 years at Billions as well. Prior to Billions, he ran his own firm, Aero Booking, launched in 1998, where he represented Death Cab for Cutie, Fleet Foxes, Beach House and Pedro the Lion, among many others. In 2008, Many merged his Aero Booking with Billions Corporation, where he added clients such as Lord Huron, Perfume Genius, and Spiritualized. Many began his career as a touring musician before going into artist representation.
